The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe is a five-passenger SUV with coupelike styling and four doors. In the relatively new class of "sport-utility coupe," the GLC is a leader in terms of quality and available tech. We also think the base GLC300 trim level is priced to be competitive with its main rivals. What you'll need to decide at the Mercedes dealership is what kind of options packages and stand-alone options you want. Most options are bundled into packages but if you're the kind of shopper who likes to pick and choose your equipment, there's a way to do that as well.
Before you add any optional extras, the GLC300 Coupe comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and equipment including a sunroof, a power driver seat, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, the Mercedes COMAND interface with a 7-inch infotainment display and an eight-speaker sound system. Materials quality in the GLC is excellent, making us believe this is one of the highest-quality vehicles in the class. It has the fit and finish that you'd expect from a much more expensive luxury vehicle.
Further up the options ladder, the GLC certainly has its fair share of optional equipment, including some class-leading safety technology. Items such as the optional 14-speaker Burmester premium sound system or the 360-degree parking camera system pair nicely with elegant available leather upholstery choices. Of course, prices can balloon considerably, but that's par for the course for a luxury SUV. Whatever your perfect GLC-Class looks like, we'll help you find it here at Edmunds.
